Default Milky Way in Colorado

On our last night in Aspen we went out to Maroon Lake. The clouds parted to reveal the stars and I got this shot of the Milky Way moving toward toward the Maroon Bells:

Beautiful! Once I got interested about space objects photography but then I lost my job and my priorities moved towards another direction.
Is it your hobbie?

That's gorgeous! I don't do astrophotography myself, just visual astronomy, but I'm in awe of those who know how to capture images like that.

Five stars review!

When I moved to Phoenix in 1985 I could see the Milky Way almost every night. Now it's rare, due to increased city lights.

Thanks for the comments!

rbarata - It’s only a hobby, but I am lucky to already have most of the equipment. It’s the lenses that really get expensive...

I was thinking the same thing. I moved here, to semi-rural southeastern Michigan, not too far from Ann Arbor, in 1984. Our skies used to give me an easy view of the Milky Way, but it's very hard to see nowadays. Increasing light pollution from the growing towns all around us, and the proliferation of unshielded LED lights for street and business lighting has been very bad news for anyone who enjoys viewing the night sky.
